16th century woodcut of Iceland by Olaus Magnus

16th century woodcut of Iceland

Rask 98

Sunday 18 November 2007 13:00-14:00 (Radio 3)

Lucie Skeaping talks to Arni Ingolfsson about one of the most important surviving Icelandic music manuscripts, Melodia or Rask 98, which was written around 1660 by an unknown scribe. It contains 223 songs, more than virtually any other Icelandic collection, and many of them are unique to this source. Ingolfsson also founded the vocal ensemble Carmina, who specialise in renaissance polyphony, and the programme includes some of their recordings of music from this and other Icelandic manuscripts.

Duration:

1 hour
